M C Escher


Born in Holland, Maurits Cornelis Escher studied graphic arts as a young man. He would later spend many years living in Italy, Switzerland, and Belgium, sketching the architecture and landscapes. Maurits Cornelis Escher’s drawings portray his interest in fantastic, albeit impossible shapes. These include landscapes with a unique take on near and far, or high and low, as is seen in his lithograph Castrovalva.

Maurits Cornelis Escher’s drawings represent a fascinating insight into two and three-dimensional geometrical perspectives. Presented as woodcuttings, metal engravings, and lithography, Maurits Cornelis Escher’s artwork for sale reveals the artist’s interest in the physical dimensions of space and matter, portrayed with mathematical and geometrical precision. In Maurits Cornelis Escher Puddle prints, the artist graphically illustrates his skill for representing more than one perspective, as a second drawing emerges from a reflection in a puddle in the first drawing.
